What's a Shooter?

    In Alaska, halibut over 100 pounds are often referred to as "shooters" as they are normally shot with a .410 shotgun or small caliber handgun before being hauled into the boat. Alaskan halibut are powerful fish and because their bodies are flat they are almost more powerful out of the water than in. Alaska halibut fishing stories abound of unlucky anglers who were thrashed and injured by large halibut because they failed to adequately subdue the fish before draging it into the boat.
